Re: [dm-devel] multipath features

Check multipath.conf.annotated in the source. This will retry n times before failing.

   no_path_retry           {n}

I have repeatable issues with setting this higher than about 3-5 however, where IO queues (more like blocks) forever, even after failing the path back... requiring a reboot, and resulting in data corruption. YMMV.

I cannot seem to find an answer for this no matter where I look, but if
I wanted to queue all IO if there was no path for a LIMITED time before
it eventually times out, does a feature exist?  Currently I am using "1
queue_if_no_path" but the last thing I want is for a path to be
unavailable and have it consume all host resources until the host cannot
handle it anymore.  Thanks in advance.
